Public Transport Improvements
The investment in new roads infrastructure has been matched by equally impressive improvements to public transport across the Clyde Gateway area, all of which have made the place a more attractive option for the sort of inward investment that will support the economic regeneration of the area.
All three railway stations at Bridgeton, Dalmarnock and Rutherglen have been upgraded and improved with Dalmarnock benefiting from an £11 million investment that saw a major transformation with a new and highly prominent main entrance with a ticketing office, new lifts and stairways. The re-opening of the station in May 2013 coincided with Sunday services calling at the station for the first time.
The backing of our council partners and the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has enabled the introduction of the Clyde Gateway Sustainable Transport Project, an initiative which has also attracted additional funding of more than £700,000 from the European Regional Development Fund and Transport Scotland.
One of the main elements of the Project has been the introduction of a new bus service – CG1 – to link up the Clyde Gateway communities in Rutherglen, Bridgeton and Dalmarnock with various industrial and commercial locations that were previously poorly served by public transport.
